The Firebrand (NPM #10)

The Firebrand

The firebrand glows like a carrot
Freshly shredded, only too hot
To touch, let alone to eat—
This orange and smoky form of heat.

To my listening ears a snap!
Crackles, pops of steamy sap—
A giant bowl of crispy rice,
A lively concert to entice.

Burning, ebbing from the coals,
Waves of comfort; heat enfolds
Weary muscles, tired mind;
Cozy up and come unwind.
